A traditional winter warmer with flavours of red fruit, roasted grains, and a hint of caramel.
Old Ale’s style is akin to a mild. It is brewed with East Anglian Pale Ale malt, Crystal malted barley and First Gold hops and has that warming fireside glow about it.
You’ll find rich aromas of caramel and nutty chocolate, which also come through on the palate along with hints of liquorice and red fruits. This is all balanced by a smooth bitterness that cleanses the palate and makes room for the next sip.
Our Mini Kegs contain the equivalent of 8 pints.
Old Ale is based on one of Adnams' oldest beer recipes, dating back to 1890. It’s traditionally brewed in the winter months and is eagerly anticipated with the change in the seasons.
Fergus Fitzgerald, Head Brewer said: “The brewing team look forward to making Old Ale, just as much as our customers look forward to drinking it. Hops play second fiddle to malt and we use Crystal, so there’s lots of toffee and liquorice in there. It’s sweet, with just the right amount of mild bitterness to cleanse the palate and make room for the next sip.
Old Ale is a term traditionally applied to strong, dark, malty beers and has been known to describe bottle conditioned ‘stock ales,’ or ‘keeping ales,’ which were beers held in a pub or brewery to mature and age.
Historically, old ales were served as a ‘boost’ to mild ales and were supplemented according to taste. This practice began in pubs and was later picked up by breweries who stored and sometimes blended beers to add some ‘old’ character to the new. Breweries such as Adnams produced a lighter style of old ale, almost replicating the flavours customers were trying to achieve when they took the time to blend their own at the bar. They offer a tantalising taste of the past.
